Internationally released with Android 9.0 Pie pre-installed back in May and clumsily expanded stateside several months later running the same software build, the Snapdragon 855-powered Asus ZenFone 6 is reportedly receiving an official Android 10 promotion across a number of major global markets. Several users on Reddit have reported that the update is rolling out in the USA and India, leading us to believe that this could be a global rollout. According to the company, it is an OTA update and brings firmware version 17.1810.1910.63_M188.8.131.52_20191028 to the device. Therefore, it might take some time to reach all users.
The Zenfone 6 was the first to debut with Asus' new ZenUI, which offers a near-stock Android experience on par with Pixel software and Oxygen OS, offering a feature-rich experience without making the UI feel bloated.

That probably means not everyone can download and install the latest goodie pack on their ZenFone 6 units around the world, but those who've been able to apply the update are pretty content with the speed improvements brought to the table, as well as the overall new system stability.
The Asus 6Z, like the ZenFone 5Z before it, runs a clean, near stock version of Android. Therefore, there is no way to flash the latest software manually. However, the Android security patch has not been raised by the Android 10 update, as the phone is still stuck on the October security patch. While the brand has fulfilled the first promise, it is to be seen if the brand holds up to its commitment to update the Zenfone 6/6Z to Android R (Or Android 11) OS. The Asus 6Z will be also available with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage for Rs 34,999.
